Section 1: How to Get Started with Udemy

Start Creating a Passive Income on Udemy

Hi, my name is Matt Bernstein and today you'll learn about how to be successful selling your video courses. You've already chose a very low upfront cost way of making money. When you create and sell video courses, you are proving to the world that you do not need money to make money. All you need is a microphone and editing software and you can literally make thousands of dollars a month for the rest of your life.

Make a video course with the good quality microphone and editing software. Once you have these materials, you can constantly create and it won't cost you any extra money. It'll cost the same whether you create one course or 100 courses. My first course, eBay secrets have made over $10,000 dollars so far. It will continue making money as long as it stays relevant. The second course, eCommerce profits has made another $5,000 dollars. Creating multiple courses, is a recipe for success.

Selling digital products is much better than selling physical products because it doesn't cost as much money. When you sell digital products, there's an unlimited inventory. Physical products, you'll have to worry about managing an inventory, and associated shipping expenses of goods.

When you sell a video course, it's all automated. The courses become unlocked for your student and Udemy does everything. It will automatically be there for students and if somebody asks for refund it's easy. Udemy will refund their money back and you do not worry about return shipping costs. It's all the same to you, it's such low risk creating selling video courses as opposed to physical products. The only initial cost you have to incur is from the microphone and editing software.

After you create your course, you're building an asset. The hours spent on creating and selling your courses will benefit you years from now. Whereas, a job that pays me $20 an hour, I won't see more money for that one hour of work. If I work one hour creating a course, that money will keep growing, as long as that course stays relevant. Over time that hour of work might equate to a thousand dollars (depending on how well you are promoting your courses).

Instead of trading your hours for short term gains, you're trading in your hours for long-term gains. That's the most important thing to realize when you sell video courses.

Quality Control and Udemy Secret

Today, we're going to learn about video course creation tips and tricks. These are things that you should do before you start making your course. You're going to learn about the quality of your courses because this is the first time you're making a Udemy course. You should know that audio quality is more important than visual quality. You also need to know the quality of other Udemy courses. The next time that Udemy has a $10 deal you should buy 2-3 courses and see what people are willing to pay for on Udemy. By watching this course, you can see the audio quality and the visuals used. You can emulate this in your own work.

You can see the first course to the left, “The Complete Web Developer Course: Build 14 Websites.” This course has over 27,000 students, but not all of those 27,000 students paid $199. This is something that I didn't realize the beginning. There's thousands of students who didn't pay anything for courses, they got for free when the instructor just created the course and wanted to build credibility. When you start off on Udemy, you give your courses away for free to thousands of students and they review it. This is how you build credibility by getting reviews and having thousands of students enrolled in the course. Another reason why not all of those 27,000 students bought the course for $199 is because Udemy has $10 deals. Over a period of time, thousands of students enrolled in this course through the $10, $19, and $24 deals. The instructor will rarely make a sale at $199. The majority of their sales came when their video courses on sale or given away for free.

These tips will get you started, you should watch other peoples courses and see the quality of the course to emulated that in your own course. You should also know that it's rare for somebody to spend $99 on my video course. I sell them for $10 through my own promotions. With Udemy promotions, they sell them for $10 or $19, and when I first started out I gave the course away for free. These are things every Udemy Instructor should know before making a video course.

Maximize Udemy Profits and Follow These Rules

Today you're going to learn about specific rules you should follow before you create your course. You don't want to waste your time. You want to maximize your profits and value added to your students. After you validate your course on Udemy, Amazon, and Google, you want make sure to do these few specific things in order to add value students and to maximize your profits. First, you want to make sure it's relevant for the next 3-5 years. My course is "Selling on eBay" and eBay has been around since the 1990's, it's been around for at least 15 years and I don't think it's going anywhere anytime soon. The method for selling on eBay and getting products at wholesale prices hasn't changed and it's not going to change next 3-5 years.

For the subject, “How to Invest in the Stock Market”. There's this book called the “Intelligent Investor” that was released in the late 1800's and that book is still relevant today. It's been selling very well for the past 100 years. It is still number one selling book about investing in the stock market. Using this information for the course retirement secrets, how to invest in the stock market. The concepts that are shown the course are relevant for the next three to five years because it's about developing investor's mindset, that concept hasn't changed in the past 100 years and it won't change in the next 3-5 years.

Another concept to remember is to make sure the course is relevant to the United States and the rest of the world. My course about selling on eBay are about my experiences selling in the United States. People internationally are able to learn how to sell on eBay, but I can't give them a step-by-step guide and it's limiting the sales of my courses. Being able to sell the United States and everywhere in the world, you're not limiting your sales because your potential is bigger. You're able to sell to every student and it's relevant to them.

For this new course, Udemy Profits, the step-by-step guide is not limited because everyone in the world can create and sell courses on Udemy. Because I'm able to have a step-by-step guide for everyone in the world it adds value for everyone and maximizes profit potential. Doing these steps will make you more money and add more value to each student. The longer you can sell your course, the more money you make. The more people who can use the course, the more value added to each student and the more money you make. Please follow these simple rules in order to add value and make more money.

Figure Out Exactly What You're Offering to Students.

People don't want to just learn a skill, they want to know the benefit of learning that skill. Students want to know the price, how long it'll take them to learn that skill, and the benefit to learn that skill.

Examples:

  • For $29, I'll teach you to write better in 90 minutes.
  • For $10, I'll teach you how to save an hour a day on your email in just 20 minutes.
  • For $5, I'll send you a PDF file with 10 productivity skills that will change the way you think in one minute each.

This course is offering students, for $10, I'll teach you how to validate your Udemy courses to increase selling success on Udemy in 30 minutes.

Section 2: Validate Course Subjects Before Creating a Course
01:07

Increase Success Before Creating a Course

Set yourself up for success on Udemy. Figure out the course you want to create, by first validating the course subject. You only want to teach the subjects that students are already buying. You want to help the most people and of course, make money. If no one's interested in buying your course, then no one can benefit from it, and you can't make any money.

Today you'll learn about validating your course subject using Amazon.com by researching what Kindle books sell. How to use Udemy to validate your course subject. How to use Google keyword planner to find out how many people are searching for your course subject per month. You'll see what specific keywords potential students are using to find your course. This will give you an indication of your potential audience of students that might enroll in your course.

Start by making a beginners course. The definition of an expert to me, is someone who knows a little more about the subject than the student you teach. There's always somebody out there who doesn't know what you know. There's always somebody who hasn't lived the life you've lived. You can always learn something from anyone you meet because they are always far superior to you in one way. As people can learn something from you because you're superior to most people in certain ways.

How to Use "Udemy" to Validate Course Subjects

Go to Udemy's homepage and search specific course subjects. We'll do a few examples together. Let's start off by searching “selling on eBay” by typing that into the search bar. According to the Udemy search results, you'd see that my course is first. “eBay profits: How I Make $2,000 A Month Drop Shipping”. There are 4,900 students in the course. You can see that there's a demand for this from the amount of people who've enrolled. Another one of my courses, "How to Sell on eBay and Amazon" has 4,100 students enrolled. You don't necessarily want to be the first one to create a course on a subject because you don't know the market or demand for it yet.

We'll keep scrolling down to see 1,500 students are enrolled in the course called “Learn How Powersellers Make Millions on eBay” Another course with 3,000 students enrolled called “How to Start a Successful eBay Business.” 1,300 students enrolled in "How to Start a Successful eBay Business That Pays You Every Week”. On Udemy, you'll see that there's a demand for selling on eBay because of the thousands of students who are enrolled in other courses.

We'll search for another course subject by typing “Investing in the Stock Market" into the search bar. We'll research the amount of students who are already enrolled in similar courses. This will tell us the amount of students that are already enrolling in similar courses on Udemy. When there are already courses about investing in stocks you can set yourself apart by using your own unique experience. You can make your courses better than your competition or you can under do them by charging less for your course.

Having competition is good because it allows you to see what students are actually interested in buying. It's okay if you're not the first course on the Udemy marketplace, because your competition already proved to you that there's a market for what you want to sell. Let's take a look at the Udemy search results together for “Investing in Stocks” and you'll see there's a course called “Value Investing Code” that's listed for free but has 45,000 students enrolled. Another course called "How to Invest in Stocks: Learning About Financial Markets" that has 3,300 students enrolled. "Retirement Secrets: How to Invest in the Stock Market" with 4,000 students enrolled. Finally, a course called "Investing Fundamentals" with 2,400 students enrolled. There is a total of 55,000 students enrolled in courses about investing in the stock market and enough people are willing to enroll in courses about this subject.

Finally, we'll research courses about “teaching online” we're basically going to validate the course you're listening to, right now. Type into the Udemy search bar, “How to Sell Courses on Udemy”. The search results tell us that there are courses with 1,100 students enrolled, 5,900 students enrolled, and 2,800 students enrolled. Again, type in "Udemy Secrets" into the Udemy search bar. You'll find a course with 6,300 students enrolled in “How I Make $4,000 A Week From Udemy Courses and No Filming.” The search results reveal that there's demand for this course subject. This course has 6,300 students enrolled with 102 reviews.

Our research validates that the course "Udemy Profits" would sell on Udemy. My content is different because my experiences are different. The instructor who created the course “How I Make $4,000 A Week” doesn't do a good job to manage students expectations. I don't think it's very realistic for many people to make $16,000 dollars a month on Udemy selling your courses. But, it is realistic for you to make $4,000 dollars a month in passive income. Start by creating courses that will add true value to students, right now.

The good news is that only about one billion people in the world have internet. By 2020, around three billion people will have internet. As Udemy's audience grows larger you will have more chances to sell your courses and more money.

How to Use "Amazon Kindle" to Validate Course Subjects

Go to Amazon.com, and we'll continue to the “selling on eBay” video course idea. We'll look at the Amazon bestseller list with the keyword eBay. Under the eCommerce category, there's an eBay section

Based off experience, anything that is the top 20,000 best rated sellers on Amazon, makes at least five sales a day. Let's click on the first book, scroll down to the “Amazon Best Sellers Rank” and it ranks 14,000. So this book sells at least 5 times a day. 5 sales a day times $7 per book equals $35 dollars a day in sales. Times $35 by 30 days per month will equal over $1,000 per month.

Multiply that by having 20 books and you'll make over $20,000 a month selling on Amazon. These are example books that people want to buy. on Amazon, they're willing to spend $7 for this book. Amazon updates these stats every hour, so you know this book is still selling well. It's ranked 14,000 best selling book, which means it makes at least 5 sales a day.

For example number two, we'll take a look at, “How I Found and Sold Two Million Dollars Worth of Junk on eBay and Amazon. Scroll down to product details, and according to Amazon Best Sellers rank is 20,000. This book sells at least five copies a day on Amazon. People are actually buying this book. The power of compounding everything counts. At five sales a day for $10, this book is selling $50 dollars per day. Minus commissions, which is 30%. This book is making about $1,500 in sales per month, right now on Amazon.

For our final example, we'll search for books about “Invest in the Stock Market”. Type those keywords into the search bar. We'll click on the first book we see, Jim Cramer's “Get Rich Carefully” We'll scroll down to the product details, and we'll see that it ranks 14,000 on Amazon's Best Seller Rank. Let's go under Product Details and look at the specific category “Investing Basics” and we'll see the Amazon Bestsellers in that category. Book titles include, The Intelligent Investor, Rich Dad Poor Dad, and The Beginner's Guide to Investing”. We'll click on each of these book titles and learn that this book ranks 3,000 best selling books. This is amongst the highest rank we've seen yet! The next book called, “Can I Retire?” ranks best selling 4,000.

We'll continue by scrolling down to the 20th ranked book on Amazon. The Neatest Little Guide to Stock Market Investing” we'll click on that title and scroll down to product detail. This book is ranked 21,000. This means that top 20 books in the investment category sell least five books a day.

This is how you validate your Udemy course subjects using Amazon Kindle Best Seller rankings.

01:43

How to Use "Google Keywords Planner" to Validate Course Subjects

Learn how it can help you validate your Udemy course ideas. Start by going to Google AdWords and click on Tools to the top of the screen, then click on the tab Key Word Planner.

For the course subject about selling on eBay. we'll type in “selling on eBay” as a keyword. To separate these terms, we'll use a comma. As more keywords, we'll use “make money online”, “drop shipping” and “selling on Amazon” That's a good enough base for keywords to research. Now, scroll down and click on the blue button "get ideas"

We'll take a look at the results which is located in the average monthly searches column. Google sorts the keywords into different “ad groups” such as. “The Make Money From Home” People searched 23,000 times for this term. “Making Extra Money” 21,000 times. “Drop Shipping” was searched for 16,000 times. For this Google Ad Group, terms were search over 120,000 times this month.

When you scroll down, “Selling on eBay” was searched 12,000 times. “Selling on Amazon” was searched 12,000 times. “Sell Books on Amazon” was searched 837,000 searches this month.

The point is, the more people searching for your course subjects. The more potential you have the more opportunity there is to make a sale. This is was part of the research that I conducted before creating video courses about “Selling on eBay” and “Investing in Stocks”. This research will help validate your course subjects too.

Give the course to students for free. No one knows who you are yet. You've just uploaded your first course on Udemy and have 0 students with 0 reviews. As an example, why should students pay for your course on eBay if they have another course option with 5,000 students and 25 reviews on Udemy?

Give your course away for free, there's a list of places in the lecture description. Build your credibility by enrolling a few thousand students in your course with at least 25 reviews. You'll have a much easier time enrolling a paying student for $10.

01:45

Create multiple courses to be successful on Udemy. It means more students and more students mean more money. For my first course, eBay Secrets, to date has profited $9,000 in its first year. My second eBay course, has profited $12,000 in the first 12 months. In my experience, my minimum requirement is 5,000 students and 25 reviews. My third course, eCommerce Profits profited over $4,500 in less than a year. Finally, a fourth course called Udemy Profits has profited $5,500 in less than a year. The point is if I just the one course I'd only made $9,000. But, because I have multiple paid courses have been able to profit over $30,000 per year.

Create as many courses as possible, telling people of your experiences in life, adding value to students. This will allow you to make more money because you're adding real value to their lives. If you create 20 courses with 5,000 students in it. That means you have a 100,000 students enrolled in all your courses. Those students have the potential to buy the next course you create because they know who you are..

You'd have a lot easier time giving a friend $10 for their birthday instead of a total stranger. People want to trust other people and not companies. When people begin to trust you after they learn what you're about, when you release a new course you can simply just sell it to them. You can cross promote it through your other courses and sell it to them on Udemy.

01:02

Today you're going to learn about how to promote your courses on Udemy, which allows you to send two promotional announcements per month. You're allowed to cross promote and sell your courses to the students who are enrolled in a course you teach. I send a promotional email and give them a sale off the retail price. Which is usually $99 and I offer it for $10.

I've tried promotions for $10 and $19. The price point that gives me the most profit is $10. Make sure you run tests of your own, using unique coupon codes, and track the results. For instance, I can promote students in my eBay Secrets course to the next level eCommerce Profits course. Students have learned how to sell on eBay, and for $10 more you can learn how to create an eCommerce store of your own to become less dependent on eBay. You're sending your students down a funnel of learning. In the next lecture, you can see examples of promotional emails that were successful.

(Udemy greets the student on email)

(get their attention, identify what the problem is) On eBay there are a ton of sellers competing with you to sell products at the lowest price and often finding retail products at wholesale prices can be time consuming and difficult.

(quick story to relate to them) In 2006, this was my exact problem--I was trying to make money selling on eBay and searched for wholesalers online and found products to sell. But, other eBay sellers had better prices than me. If I matched the lowest price on eBay, I could never make a profit.

(them them a solution) That's when I discovered, you have to become a legitimate business to work with real wholesalers. You'll have to call manufacturers and get a list of wholesalers they sell to directly. This way, you know you're getting the best wholesale price for the retail products you want to sell on eBay.

It doesn't matter what country you live in. This concept works.

(manage their expectations) This course outlines, step by step how to start a business and makes things a lot easier for you. It only takes a few hours to get setup with a business license and get in touch with your first wholesaler.

(tell them why you're the person to help them) Since selling on eBay in 2006, I've grossed over $775,000 in sales.

(show social proof) While (not) studying to become a communication major at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, I was profiting $24,000 per year selling on eBay (that's a lot of beer money) This is confirmed in lecture 1 and 2 of the course (click here for a free preview).

(give them bonuses) As a free bonus, you'll receive additional lectures about gaining customer loyalty to enable you to make more consistent profits per month.

You'll also be able to post unlimited questions to me in the discussion section of the course for additional help.

When you buy the course, you'll receive lifetime access, as well as the ability to download lectures to your computer and access the course on iOS and Android.

(reduce their risk to buying the course) Most importantly, you'll have a 30 day money back guarantee (no questions asked).The secret to getting ahead is to get started and you'll make back your initial investment in less than 4 sales.

(remind them to get off the fence) Only a very limited number of people know this information. That means you'll have limited competition in this area to maximize your probability for success.

Today, we're going to talk about how to increase your Udemy course sales organically. Udemy keeps track of your course numbers. They count how many paid students enroll in your course per month, how many reviews each of your courses have, how many refunds are taken per month, how many discussion posts, and how many minutes viewed per month. The more of these numbers you have, the better off you are (excluding refunds).

You're in control when it comes to being listed above your competitors during these deals. You just need to do a few things right and put in the work in order to succeed. First, is student feedback. Udemy surveys students throughout their experience in the course. Students want to get to the meat of the course quickly. They want to dive deeper into topics, they want their expectations to be managed, and they want to see you on camera.

You'll initially create a course, and every 6 months, you should take a look at feedback. Listen to your students feedback, and Udemy's feedback. This will help your course stay timeless on Udemy.

For instance, my course Udemy profits, students have cited two things that need improving. First, Instructor Delivery: Work on your delivery to come across as more engaging, prepared, and/or credible. Second, Clarity & Structure Improve the clarity of explanations and/or the organization of the course.

The positive of the course is that students expectations are managed and students are confident the course will help them achieve their learning goals. This feedback is the reasoning for the course update. It's been over 6 months since the release of the course. A lot of great students have watched the course and given feedback for improvements. By improving the course and updating it, value is being added to students :)

While (not) studying to become a communication major at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, I was profiting $24,000 per year selling on eBay (that's a lot of beer money).

After college, I moved to an apartment in Boston, MA (that I could barely afford) to create Udemy courses, teaching students how to sell on eBay.

Currently, I'm a top 100 Udemy instructor, teaching people how to emulate my successes on Udemy and eBay. What effectively works for one person will effectively work the same for any other person.

My success is largely due to minimizing risk with low upfront costs.

Section 5: How to Profit More Money with Existing Content
01:33

Uploading your courses too many different platforms can be a lot of work. It also becomes tedious to list your content on ten different platforms. Especially when you don't know if you gonna make enough money for it to be worth it.

When a platform contacts you to work with you and have you list your content on their platform. Instead, upload all of your content to Google Drive and give them access to your content and make them do all the work you're helping to automate the process. You're no longer risking your time uploading content to different platforms in the hope that they'll be successful and make you money.

Create a folder on Google Drive called "affiliates" and create a subfolder called "video courses" I've divided my courses by free and paid so click on the "paid courses" we'll take a look at "Udemy Profits" This is sorted by lectures and information. Now we click on lectures, the course is broken into six sections. We'll click on section and see that lectures 8-14 are listed. Now, click on information This includes the course description, the course image, the course title, subtitle, the instructor photo, learning objectives, and of course the promotional video. This information will be used by the platforms in order to market your course. To give different affiliate platforms access to Google Drive files all you have to do is click the SHARE button and send them the link.

Today, you're going to learn how to make money on Fiverr. You can start by clicking on "start selling" on the upper right hand tab. to join Fiverr, you can connect through Facebook, Google+, or your email. I connected with Facebook. So, I sign in with Facebook Connect. Now, go to your Fiverr account and click on my sales. We'll take a look at the revenue of how much I've earned on Fiverr. To date, 256 dollars now it doesn't take that long to earn that much on Fiverr because all you're doing is listing advertisements for your video course on Udemy. or what they call gigs, for $5 people can purchase your video courses.

Next, you'll learn how to create a gig. You'll start by your gig title, your category, your gig gallery, description, keyword tabs, duration: so basically this means that you're not exactly uploading your lectures 25 Fiverr, rather you're giving them unique coupon code every time you get a purchase. you can add video to your gig, basically promoting it. It's about 30 seconds or less and you have to say that it's exclusive to Fiverr. (even though it doesn't have to be).

Once your account get's to level two seller, you can add in gig extras. This enabled me to do one thing. For $5 I sell the PDF file of the ebook, rather than the video course. For $10, you'll get lifetime access to the video course. So when people want the video course, this enables me to get $15 per sale. instead of just $5. To profit $256, it didn't take that long because you're not uploaded the course. Rather you're making advertisements, so it's like creating a sales page on Udemy, it doesn't take you that long. The more course you make, then the more gigs you can create on Fiverr.
